This community radiation monitoring station was created in response to detections of multiple radioactive clouds passing through. Click these links to find detailed documented information on these significant detections in Australia, and New Zealand. This short animation of Northern, and Southern Hemisphere air circulation, shows why we can get detections so far south.
For the Sunshine Coast Queensland Australia, the recorded 4 year average local background radiation level was ~ 0.10 uSv/hr before the Fukushina Nuclear Catastrophe, see historical chart at bottom of page.
Once the GammaScout Alert Geiger counter recorded 24 hr 60 second logged data of the day has been downloaded, it is analysed and then posted here the next morning.
(Note: The reference monitoring station's GammaScout Geiger counter died on the 12th September 2018, RIP. The last full day average it recorded was on the 11th September 2018. The GammaScout was used as a reference for many years up until it stopped working.
Will be trialling different equipment for the local monitoring station, a SBT-10 pancake, using Theremino Geiger counter software. It has been worked out how to transfer the logged data form this new set up into the old charting system. As different monitoring equipment is now being used, so the long term data charts will not have the same statistical accuracy.)
At times significant peaks in radiation maybe detected which would warrant the issuing of a cautionary email advisory or an alert. To be placed on the radiation advisory alert list simply click on email@example.com, address, and send. Please take the time to read any email advisory or alert, and come back to this web site during the day for further updates.
Liposomal Vitamin C
An Oncologist in Japan Dr. Atsuo Yanagisawa, has been doing ongoing research on the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster site workers, and has found he is getting very good results with Liposomal Vitamin C. It appears to be healing a lot of radiation damage to their bodies.
Liposomal Vitamin C is a combination of vitamin C and lecithin. This combination seems to improve the up take of vitamin C by 80%! It maybe a good idea for you and your family to research taking this to fortify against the effects of these radiation clouds coming through. He has been trying to encourage the Japanese government to educate their people about this treatment.

A study from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found that flaxseed may help protect lungs against the damage caused by radiation exposure. The researchers believe that flaxseed might also have a role in protecting other healthy tissues and organs, before exposure to radiation. It can even significantly reduce damage even after exposure.

Solar Storms: Sometimes the most beautiful natural phenomena can have devastating consequences. When the sun ejects hot charged particles into space, the Northern Lights are created here on Earth. Occasionally the sun erupts with huge quantities of particles (Coronal Mass Ejection) that can damage the earth’s electric systems. Renowned author Mat Stein and Arnie Gundersen discuss the dangers of a large coronal mass ejection on the electrical grid and on nuclear plants worldwide.

Detections Overview for 2011 to 2018:
From the Northern Hemisphere atmospheric nuclear bomb testing studies the ratio of fallout between the Northern and Southern Hemisphere worked out to be about 5 to 1. The dynamics of the releases from the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe would be similar. This suggests a lot less contamination from Fukushima is reaching the Southern Hemisphere, compared to the Northern Hemisphere.
After 2011, radioactive cloud detections were recorded in Australia and New Zealand by people with Geiger counters. There were only a few people actively recording background radiation levels at the time. These Australia and New Zealand reports are based on their detections. Because of the limited monitoring, we have no idea how wide spread throughout the Southern Hemisphere these significant radioactive clouds events were. A number of these recorded radioactive cloud events were free air detections on hot fine days, so they can’t be put down to Radon-222 rain washout events!
Small amounts Radon-222 gas is in the air we breath all the time. Depending on the regional geography, large radon washout events can occur in any country. Large Radon-222 washout events were detected in the Nimbin and Mullumbimby areas in late January 2013. Here is a theory put forward by the people running the Nimbin private monitoring Station at the time. Nimbin is located on the east cost of Northern New South Wales Australia.
The area had been in a dry period, and the underground aquifers water levels were low. A flooding rain event came through, and quickly forced a large amount of radioactive Radon gas into the atmosphere, that had built up in the aquifers during the dry period. The Radon daughter isotopes were then washed out of the atmosphere during the rain event, and detected on the rain swabs.
We haven't seen any studies on the heath effects of being exposed to very large Radon washouts, but would suggest staying out of the rain during these events. Read the October 2012 Radiation background monthly report here, for a couple theories why atmospheric Radon levels may have increased since Fukushima.
A well as Radon-222 and occasionally Radon-220, trace amounts of Iodine I-129, Beryllium Be-7 and Lead Pb-210, have been detected in the rain water tests. Even though the amounts detected maybe below Government set risk levels, it is suggested that those who are using tank water should use good water filters, and those on town water use a good reverse osmosis water filter. Also wash your fruit and vegetables well before cooking and eating. Years of rain water, and rain swab test results can be found here.
The recent data collected here indicates that the increase we saw in local background levels after Fukushima has stabilized. Compared to just after 3/11, the number of radioactive cloud events detected passing over the area has decreased significantly. In 2015 test results indicated some of the increase in November and December 2015 local background levels were from increased Southern Hemisphere volcanic activity.
The 2016 year average was 25% above pre-Fukushima recorded year average. This was highest year average recorded here so far. At this Southern Hemisphere location, the local year average background has seen an increase in local background levels since Fukushima. If we are seeing a steady increase in year averages here in the Southern Hemisphere, it suggests that locations in the Northern Hemisphere are seeing much greater yearly increases.
The 2017 local year average background rose to 27% above the 4 year pre-Fukushima average. Some of this increase was not Fukushima related. A detailed report for 2017 can be found here. http://sccc.org.au/yearly-report-for-2017-multiple-records-broken
At Fukushima there are still three highly radioactive molten cores in china syndrome, with large volumes of underground water flowing over them. This large volume of contaminated water is continually flowing into the North Pacific Ocean. This, plus the large atmospheric radioactive releases are creating Planetary Thermal Imbalance & Extreme UV Levels, and also causing cross species animal die off’s in the Northern Pacific Ocean.
The 4yr pre-Fukushima recorded local background was ~ 0.1 uSv/hr, hence the above 4yr reference in the charts. Here are detailed historical charts for 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, and 2012, plus pre-Fukushima local background radiation levels.
Daily average local background radiation level charts, and event reports for 2019 are below.
(Note: As the monitoring equipment now being used is a SBT-10 pancake probe which averagers over a 100 Counts Per Minute (CPM), so the 2019 day average charts will now be in CPM, not uSv/hr.)
